More on Tea Party. Sorry, can't help it.

Let's look at their [current Tea Party] mission statement:
  • Fiscal Responsibility
  • Constitutionally Limited Government
  • Free Markets
Really?  That sounds pretty good.  But did you read "Free Markets"?
Free Markets: A free market is the economic consequence of personal liberty. The founders believed that personal and economic freedom were indivisible, as do we. Our current government's interference distorts the free market and inhibits the pursuit of individual and economic liberty. Therefore, we support a return to the free market principles on which this nation was founded and oppose government intervention into the operations of private business.
Oh, oppose government intervention eh?  You mean, you oppose stringing up the people who break the law and steal people's homes and wealth?  Private business is only private up until it rips someone off.
Notice what's missing from this mission statement and principles: Any mention of why I and others led people to mail tea bags to Congress and our President in the first place: rampant theft of over taxpayer money propping up FAILED private businesses
---Karl Denninger, Tea Party Founder.
